Kid From Kid ‘n Play Impersonates Colin Kaepernick on Jason Whitlock’s FS1 Show
Don’t adjust your preferred screen’s Brightness setting, that’s not actually Colin Kaepernick on Jason Whitlock’s FS1 show. Actor Christopher Reid, better known as Kid of “House Party” duo Kid ‘n Play, dropped by the Fox Sports studio on Tuesday dressed up as the NFL’s most famous free agent. Also a rapper and a comedian, Reid donned an afro wig and beard combo, a No. 7 San Francisco 49ers jersey, and wore a black glove on his right hand. He raised that balled fist for a photo op, referencing the Black Power salute popularized in American sports culture by Tommie Smith and.

  • TMZ
The man dressed up like Colin Kaepernick during a segment with FS1 star Jason Whitlock is not white ... despite what the Internet thinks. He's actually Kid from Kid 'n Play -- aka Christopher Reid, star of 'House Party' 1, 2 and 3 (remember, he was replaced by Immature in 'House Party 4'). Whitlock has been receiving all sorts of hate online from people who think he dressed up a white dude to mock the NFL Qb.

Valiant Comic's Shadowman Movie Gets House Party Director

  • MovieWeb
Marvel Cinematic Universe, you say? DC Extended Universe on your mind? Well, Valiant Entertainment is trying very hard to make sure that in the next few years the Valiant cinematic universe is just as much a part of the pop culture conversation. The latest step they have taken is hiring director Reginald Hudlin to helm their in-the-works movie adaptation of their cult favorite comic Shadowman.

As reported by Comicbook.com, Valiant is moving ahead with Shadowman in-house before taking the project out to studios. Bringing on Reginald Hudlin is a big step in that process. If you don't know the name, you're probably not alone. Hudlin has primarily been known as a TV director, but his movie Marshall is coming out later this year. And back in the early 90s, he did direct a little cult movie called House Party with iconic rappers Kid 'n Play. He also directed Eddie Murphy in Boomerang,

Hey NYC! 25th Anniversary Screening of 'House Party' Followed by Discussion w/ Cast & Crew, Next Week!

  • ShadowAndAct
It's been a long 25 years since "House Party" opened in theaters across the country, helping to usher in what would become a 1990s "new wave" in black cinema - one that I think many of us who were around at the time (I was still in high school then), remember quite fondly. The movie, starring the then popular rap group Kid 'n Play (Christopher “Kid” Reid and Christopher “Play” Martin), and written and directed by Reginald Hudlin, went on to gross over $26 million at the box office (or around $50 million in today's dollars). It spawned 2 sequels which didn't quite capture the magic and thrill of the first one, and subsequently each (numbers 2 and 3, released in 1991 and...

Review: 'Community' - 'Basic Rv Repair and Palmistry': Flashback fever

Review: 'Community' - 'Basic Rv Repair and Palmistry': Flashback fever
A quick review of this week's "Community" coming up just as soon as I wonder what's wrong with me if that's hot... Don't have much to say about "Basic Rv Repair and Palmistry" beyond noting how right Abed was when he admitted there wasn't much story here and he became too focused on the Christopher Nolan flashback gimmick of it as a result. That's the episode in a nutshell: a couple of funny moments (Jeff's reaction to Britta in the giant hand, Abed and the Dean doing the Kid 'N Play dance, Space Elder Britta being just as much of a spaz as present-day Britta) in an episode where there was no real there there, even with Abed delivering the Jeff Winger speech about the meaning of the hand, and even with the vague allusions to the "4 Days Out" episode of "Breaking Bad." That said... that final sequence with Matt Besser

Kim Jong Un Looks Like He's Channeling Will Smith with Crazy New Haircut
Kim Jong Un is shaking up his style, and we think we know who inspired his new hairdo. The supreme leader of North Korea became the talk of the Internet when he displayed a fuller, flatter and taller hairstyle during a politburo meeting in Pyongyang on Wednesday. Like most things involving the dictator, the circumstances surrounding the bold new look remain a mystery, but we couldn't help but notice that it looks oddly similar to the "flat top" haircut that was popularized in the '90s by stars like Will Smith and Kid from Kid 'n Play.

Britain's Got Talent star Leondre: 'I don't hate the bullies'

Britain's Got Talent star Leondre Devries has suggested that his experience of bullying made him stronger.

The 13-year-old - who won over the judges with 15-year-old Charlie Lenehan as duo Bars and Melody - rapped about his experience of cruel treatment during his audition.

"I don't hate the bullies," he told Digital Spy today. "The bullies must have had a hard time for them to take it out on people who are not as strong and not the tallest either! I can't say I'm tall!

"I just feel like it has been an experience. What my mother always says to me is, 'What doesn't kill you makes you stronger'. I just feel like if I hadn't experienced that, I wouldn't be the person I am today."

The duo, who met in September, agreed that doing the competition "wouldn't be the same" without each other, as Devries explained: "As soon as

From The Matrix to Rudy: Rating the Super Bowl Ads’ Nostalgia Bait
The cliché of watching the Super Bowl just for the ads felt especially true last night, when the game itself was as close as if an actual seahawk and a bronco were competing in a flying contest. As usual, a recurring theme was nostalgia, trotting out a celebrity or a character from a past era in the hopes that millions of people watching will think, Ha-ha, I recognize that person! Here's my money. Here's who popped up — from Arnold Schwarzenegger to the Full House bros to the California Raisins — and how their reappearance made the viewer feel. Commercial: RadioShack Callback: Hulk Hogan, CHiPs' Ponch, Kid N' Play, Twisted Sister's Dee Snider, Mary Lou Retton, Alf, Cliff from Cheers, the California Raisins, and the rest of the eighties Concept: Eighties mainstays destroy a dated RadioShack, allowing for the new RadioShack to rise from the ashes, like a phoenix wearing

RadioShack's Super Bowl Commercial Brings In (Almost) Every '80s Star, and It's Totally Awesome

RadioShack's Super Bowl Commercial Brings In (Almost) Every '80s Star, and It's Totally Awesome
Awesome! Tubular! Far-out! (Other '80s phrases!) Even though it's not even halftime yet in the 2014 Super Bowl, RadioShack already aired what might be one of the best comercials of the night. As a little nod to the fact that most people think the electronic store is basically obsolete, two RadioShack employees got a call from the '80s, because the decade wanted their store back. So a hoard of iconic '80s stars burst through the doors to take back all the out-of-date technology. Hulk Hogan, Alf, Erik Estrada, Dee Snider, Chucky from the Child's Play franchise, Kid 'N Play, and even Bubo, the owl from Clash of the Titans stormed the store. Gang was all there! So now that...

The Observer's books of the year

  • The Guardian - Film News
From new voices like NoViolet Bulawayo to rediscovered old voices like James Salter, from Dave Eggers's satire to David Thomson's history of film, writers, Observer critics and others pick their favourite reads of 2013. And they tell us what they hope to find under the tree …

Curtis Sittenfeld

Novelist

My favourite books of 2013 are Drama High (Riverhead) by Michael Sokolove, Sea Creatures (Turnaround) by Susanna Daniel, and & Sons (Harper Collins) by David Gilbert. Drama High is incredibly smart, moving non-fiction about an American drama teacher who for four decades coaxed sophisticated and nuanced theatrical performances out of teenage students who weren't privileged or otherwise remarkable and in so doing, changed their conceptions of what they could do with their lives. Sea Creatures is a gripping, beautifully written novel about the mother of a selectively mute three-year-old boy; when she takes a job ferrying supplies to a hermit off the coast of Florida,

7 Movie Theme Songs We Can't Believe Exist

7 Movie Theme Songs We Can't Believe Exist
The 1980s were an interesting time. You had shoulder pads, Ronald Reagan, big hair, neon everywhere you looked and Don Johnson. We also saw a trend at the local cinema that has never really been replicated in any other decade. We had actual 'theme' songs that accompanied some of our biggest hits throughout this ten-year span of time. In listening to these strange, sometimes beautiful, sometimes awful, sometimes just pure 80s cheese pieces of ear gold, we have to keep in mind that these songs were written by adults. And some became big hits...But most did not. Some are beyond juvenile, and likely written on a napkin during an 80s power lunch as an after thought. These are songs that, had there not been a movie to accompany them, most likely never would have existed. And lets be honest...Some of them shouldn't exist. At all. However, these movies

15 Most '90s-tastic '90s Movie Moments

  • NextMovie
Remember the '90s? Sure you do. The music was grungier. The Marky Marks were Markier. You had to choose between your phone and the Internet. And the ponytails were occasionally sideways.

Well, if you somehow missed the decade due to an interference in the time-space continuum — or you just happen to be really young — we've assembled 15 movie clips that best represent what life, or at least movies, were like during that glorious decade. A '90s time capsule, if you will. So sit back, relax and throw on your favorite starter jacket.

1. 'House Party' (1990) — Kid 'n Play Dance-Off

Way before film dance battles occurred in 3D thunderdomes and huge flattop cuts were throwbacks, Kid 'n Play were throwing down the on-screen dance gauntlet with some fly girls in "House Party," a movie that knew enough to not let a plot get in the way of fun and

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1990

  • Den of Geek
Odd List Simon Brew Ryan Lambie 19 Sep 2013 - 07:20

From dramas to action and everything in between, here's our pick of 20 underrated films from 1990...

Think back to the big films of 1990, and you'll probably immediately come up with things like Ghost, the year's top-grossing film, or maybe Home Alone, which made a star out of the young Macaulay Culkin.

If you're into sci-fi or action, you might pluck Total Recall, Back To The Future Part III or even Die Hard 2 out of your memory banks. But what about all those movies that didn't make it into the year's top 10 ranking films? As ever, there's a huge number of duds and forgettable flops, but there were plenty of films that were wrongly overlooked, too.

That's where this list comes in, which aims to shed a bit of light on 20 films that were either unfairly overlooked by audiences at the time, or
